Clean living report
I decided to focus no produces that I'm finding I can eat this week. Between being too poor to afford some crazy ingredient and the time restraints of helping with a show. I love these cookies. Not only are they gluten free, they are sugar free too! They are sweetened with molasses. When ever I get a sweet tooth I now has a go-to snack. It's nice that one little cookie will do too.
I found this dreamy little product at a health food store. Too bad it is so pricey. Over $5 for one little tub. It sure makes mash potatoes tasty! It's also nice on GF raisin toast. I have to fight off the kids for this yummy treat.
I also found these at a health food store. They were far more statisfying that regular potato chips. Every once in a while I get a craving for a crunchy snack. I loved this product!
This year we tried growing celery. It worked. it is a little more bitter then celery from the store. It is also a little more chewy. Talk about "clean eating" The only food prints are the ones tracked in from the garden. LOL.
We also grew green peppers. I love these and I got tons. If I can't get any more tomatoes from my garden to make salsa with, I will have to find people to give them too. We were able to grow green, yellow, red and even purple peppers. It was so cool!
So... I was in the habit of drinking a diet Pepsi as my go-to soda. However, the acupuncturist I am seeing suggested I spot drinking caffenated, sugar or worse, false sugar sodas. I still had a craving. Then I found this. I loved it. Nothing like real ginger ale... made sugar free and with out synthetic sugars!
I also found a new healthier food store to shop at. Corvallis got a Market of Choice. I finally drove down there and checked it out. What a get store! It wasn't as expensive as I thought it might be. It had many things I can eat. They have clear labels and helpful people. They even sale the herbs I like. It's a winner!
My favorite "clean eating" food of the week are the tomatoes from my garden. I didn't get as many this year as I have in years past. What I have picked is really yummy. Now that it is raining I will have to watch what is still out in the garden. I don't want them to split and spoil. I think we only have a few days of rain and then more sun. Tomato sandwiches.... yummmy!
